Registered Charity No: 1004005 (England & Wales), SC037480 (Scotland).

MCS is the UK’s leading marine charity. Our seas have suffered decades of decline - too much rubbish thrown in and too many fish taken out.

As an island nation many people recognise that our seas are the lifeblood of the UK’s coastal communities.  A gift left in your Will or a donation in memory of a loved one will help MCS achieve better marine protection and cleaner bathing waters, extend our work for marine turtles and other iconic marine species and help us keep our coastlines litter free.

We are campaigning hard to reduce the amount of single-use plastic in the system as this blights our coastline and impacts so much on marine wildlife. We are also campaigning for better protection for UK fisheries after Brexit and to increase the amount of our seas protected in marine protected areas.

Our coasts are an iconic destination for many people and donations entirely fund MCS’s work in protecting the UK’s seas and beaches.
